*To solve simple Algebra problems

Materials Needed

You will need the following worksheet. I have the answer sheet following the worksheet.

Beginning Algebra Problems

Directions: Solve the equations to the simplest form.

1. 1x + 3x =

2. 5x + 6x =

3. 8x + 14x =

4. 2x + 4x + 6x =

5. 9x + 2x + 6x + x =

6. (2x + 2x) + (4x + 3x) =

7. (3x + 6x) - (6x + 3x) =

8. (5x + 2x + 3x) =

9. 2(3x + 4x) =

10. 3(2x + 4x + 8x) =

11. 8(4x + 3x + 12x) =

12. 2(8x + 14x + 3x) =

13. 4(31x + 2x + 5x) =

14. 2(9x - 6x) =

15. 4(19x - 12x) =

16. 8(2x + 23x - 2x) =

17. 7(5x - 2x + 6x) =

18. 9(3x + 4x + 9x) =

19. 31(4x - 2x + 2x) =

20. 24(3x + 1x + 5x) =



Answer Sheet to Beginning Algebra Problems.

1. 1x + 3x = 4x

2. 5x + 6x = 11x

3. 8x + 14x = 22x

4. 2x + 4x + 6x = 12x

5. 9x + 2x + 6x + x = 18x

6. (2x + 2x) + (4x + 3x) = 4x + 7x = 11x

7. (3x + 6x) - (6x + 3x) = 9x - 9x = 0

8. (5x + 2x + 3x) = 10x

9. 2(3x + 4x) = 2(7x) = 14x

10. 3(2x + 4x + 8x) = 3(14x) = 42x

11. 8(4x + 3x + 12x) = 8(19x) = 152x

12. 2(8x + 14x + 3x) = 2(25x) = 50x

13. 4(31x + 2x + 5x) = 4(38x) = 152x

14. 2(9x - 6x) = 2(3x) = 6x

15. 4(19x - 12x) = 4(7x) = 28x

16. 8(2x + 23x - 2x) = 8(23x) = 184x

17. 7(5x - 2x + 6x) = 7(3x + 6x) = 7(9x) = 63x

18. 9(3x + 4x + 9x) = 9(16x) = 144x

19. 31(4x - 2x + 2x) = 31(4x) = 124x 20. 24(3x + 1x + 5x) = 24(9x) = 216x

Procedure

First, you will explain how to add simple Algebra problems such as: 2x + 2x = 4x or 3x + 3x + 6x = 12x or 3(2x + 4x) = 3(6x) = 18x

You can explain how to do these problems by writing down examples on the board before the students do their worksheet.

After you have explained how to do the problems, then you can pass out the worksheet to each student so they can work independently.

Then, you can grade the worksheets.

Grading

100 to 90 = A

89 to 80 = B

79 to 70 = C

69 to 60 = D

Below 60 = F
